Obama's Re Election Was Akin to a Miracle

Introduction:Humor in Politics. Politics are so dry that sometimes it requires humor to make it palatable. If this was not a miracle, then it was certainly the rotten tomatoes syndrome.

  • 01

    Defied Gravity.

    In every way, President Obama rose even though there was enough evidence and records to pull him down and keep him down; terrible economy, 16 Trillion in debt, foreign policy mess; political cover ups, high unemployment, rise in poverty, incresed numbers of people on public dole, scandals, green energy fiascos ... the list goes on and on.

  • 02

    Defied Logic

    The logic that if something doesn't work, it must go - did not work. College kids, unemployed, minorities, young women, all voted in large numbers for Obama despite knowing their situation would be worse with Obama's policies. If tomatoes give acidity to some, they must stop eating tomatoes or find a replacement. If buying tomatoes at $5 a pound is too high, logic dictates we find another store. Unfortunately Obama's re-election will see most of us eating rotten tomatoes.

    Defied Basic Math

    2+2=4; Obama's poor record indicated 2+2=-4 (negative four); however more than half the electorate gave him a resounding 2+2=+5. How did this happen? was this a miracle? Do rules of Math and Arithmetic need to be re-written?

    Reiterated Theme of No Sense

    The top three reasons above and people's decision to the contrary, make no sense at all, just like miracles don't make sense. Miracles operate in the realm of belief or suspended sense. Perhaps the theory of chaos as expressed so eloquently by some philosophers and scientists may have some truth to it.

  • 05

    Reiterated Theme of Probability

    At any given time, chances of getting things or events occurring are 50-50. This is the only formula that could explain the Obama phenomenon. From all indications prior to the elections, Obama's chances of reaching a 50% looked difficult. After the elections, how Obama went over that 50% seemed a miracle!

    Yup, you got it. It does defy logic and some of us are still scratching our heads. Well done.

    Even some of the voting machines were from Russia. Why? Ask Obama. Your list is brain food.

    I agree his reelection defies logic. If he worked for me and did the job he did over 4 years time I would fire him and take a chance on someone more qualified. That said I wish him luck. More focus on economy and less practicing your golf swing please.

    Thank you litetender for stopping by. I have to give you credit for getting me to do this piece because I thoroughly enjoyed your piece on Obama.

    The votes Obama did not buy (college interest loan forgiveness, welfare, free healthcare) he took via graft and theft. Consider http://foxnewsinsider.com/2012/11/05/voter-fraud-watch-key-voter-fraud-cases-that-could-plague-2012-election/ ... there was enough voter fraud in key states alone to sway the election.
